    What's up with the red light coming from my headphone jack. It only turns on when I am in Windows XP via Bootcamp. It doesn't turn on while using OSX.

    Yeah, to get it to go away, you need to try the really advanced method of keep plugging and unplugging headphones.

    It's unclear what exactly is the culprit or what exactly the other solution is to fix it.

    No jokes.

    I have the same "problem" - nothing you can really do about it except deal with it.

    Yeah, it's no problem. I was just wondering what it could be. I had never seen it on any MacBooks before.

    You didnt install the drivers. Put in your OSX dvd and install the drivers to make it all work.

    What does that even mean? Of course I installed the drivers from my OSX 10.6 disc, but if you have not realized the driver, I posted, is from the OSX 10.6.1 disc.

    Guess what buddy? They work. They fixed the red light issue.

    First go to the Programs and Features section of the control panel.
    Then uninstall the Cirrus Logic Windows Driver Package
    Reboot
    Then install the appropriate new driver from the zipped folder in the link a couple posts above.

    I was referencing OP, if OP didnt install the audio drivers from the DVD then its going to leave the optical on all the time.
